Why do you need a Patient Advocate?
Medical billing advocates often have past experience working for medical providers, medical billing companies, or insurance agencies—so they have an insider’s perspective. A medical billing advocate provides the following types of services:
Look over your medical bills, insurance explanations of benefits (EOBs), and medical records for accuracy.
Find errors and negotiate with your medical provider or insurance company to lower your costs. Errors may include medical billing code discrepancies, over-charges, inappropriate insurance claims denials, and other mistakes that canunnecessarily raise your bill.
Work with your medical provider to negotiate further discounts.
Put together a medical bill payment plan for your medical provider (including hospitals) that fits your budget.
